Hello again! It's Leigh Anne here， from Houseologie. You may remember me from my last contributor post when I showed you how I made these fun DIY stamped canvas totes.
Well this month I am back with another project that involves leather ：)personalized gifts for 1 year old
I hope you're enjoying amazing Spring weather and maybe a little Spring cleaning？ I know I'm not the only who gets excited about such things! I love purging my home and getting rid of things but also decorating and re-decorating and re-decorating…；.sensing a theme here？ Sometimes Spring cleaning and decorating kind of have a head-on collision and you get the best of both worlds. Such is the case with this Mid-Century Modern Credenza and her (yes， she's a girl!) DIY Leather Drawer Pulls.
You see， my husband was switching offices at work thus the Spring Cleaning there. While I was cleaning and purging our house during Spring Break. He texted me a picture of this AMAZING Mid-Century Modern Credenzapersonalized christmas ornaments， asking if I wanted it. I mean， YES!! Of course， I want it. I thought this can be a really beautiful piece of furniture AND I can use it for storage in the dining room， something I desperately needed!

After I added those gorgeous hairpin legs and painted the drawer fronts， I knew I wanted to change the drawer pulls to something really fabulous. I looked all over and nothing really struck my fancy so I decided to make my own. Read on to learn how to make them for yourself!
Note：Make sure all of your brass pieces are compatible with each other!
1) The holes in my drawers were already 6 inches apart from the previous handles so I stuck with those holes so I wouldn't have to fill them and drill new ones. In order for the leather to curve out and create a handle shape， I added 2 inches in length and cut my leather strips into 8 inch pieces.
2) I used my drill and predrill bit to put the holes through the leather， this was so much easier than trying to cut the hole. I just folded the leather strip in half on top of a scrap piece of wood， marked where I wanted my hole and drilled through. Test your hole with your machine screw to make sure it goes through， If not just go up a size in your bit and drill through again.
3) Now that you have your holes drilled through your leather， put your machine screw through your finishing washers， then put that through the hole in your leather. Then put both screws through the holes on your drawers. Screw a washer and a nut onto the back of the screw. Before you tighten all the way just make sure your leather is straight on the front of your drawer.
And that's it. Can you believe how easy these are？!

This story starts out with a Poncho that was impressive from the moment I saw this in the Burberry Fashion show back in 2014. There were?celebrity?sightings all over the?streets in?this poncho. This?is my DIY version of ?that exclusive monogrammed poncho,?minus the not-so-budget friendly price-tag that goes along with the brand. Fall and winter fabrics are hitting the stores in full force right now and when I ran into this print at my local fabric store, I knew it would work well for this project. The?fabric is a polyester, rayon blend and I used a wool felt for the lettering.

Last week I was in Target. Every time I’m there I like to stop by the home furniture section to see kind of displays they have up. Target always know what’s up. When I saw they had a right?shelf dedicated to Gold accent decor pieces and the left shelf had Copper, it became clear that gold is no longer relevant to me.??Gold had it’s moment for the last 2 years and this year it’s?time for copper to go all out in full force. ?I had my gold moment and if you’re still enjoying your, there is nothing wrong with it! It’s all a matter of opinion and style. My style is transforming constantly and I’m going through my copper phase. Copper has a very distinct and?mystery to it. It stands out without taking away attention from everything else in the room. ?It looks?effortless and less gaudy when you have more than 1 statement pieces in one room. It’s shiny, cold but also warms up a room.
